I am looking for suggestions to read a large fixed-column format file and 
create a data-frame with about 50,000 observations and 400 variables, each 
variable in 2--5 colums. This is on a machine with 128 Mb of RAM with R on 
Linux or MS-win. I will also be thankful for any other suggestions about 
working with data of this size.
